SD 92SE TODMORDEN (former M.B.) WOODHOUSE ROAD

Woodhouse Mill, engine- 7/325 house and detached chimney 20 m to south.

G.V. II*

Mill. 1832. Ashlar, stone slate roof. 5 storeys. Elevation to north fronts Rochdale Canal and is of 10 bays originally. The 5th bay has taking-in door to each floor over which is set pediment with band, cat-head and bullseye bearing date. Coped gable to right only. To left is added 2 bays of 4 storeys. Each bay has windows to each floor with plain stone surrounds, projecting sills glazed with small panes. Right hand return wall of 4 bays. 2 bays of windows. Stair tower breaks forward a bay and is blind to its north and west face. Rear has added bay of windows in stair tower which carries above roof in brick to form water tower. Attached to rear is 2-storey engine house which has tall semi-circular arched window forming 2-span roof with former office. Chimney has pitch faced stone to base, square on plan, with moulded cornice and tall circular tapering chimney with ringed cap. This mill is of particular interest because it was steam driven from its inception at an early date. It is of some distinction, retains its fenestration and window glazing, and fronting the canal is prominent in the landscape.
